 ***If athletes begin the WOD with a row, they finish with a run and vice versa.

- In its design, the WOD symbolizes the horrific events that unfolded on September 11, 2001.  The date and year are represented by the row/run (i.e. 2001 meters) and the 9 movements each include 11 repetitions. The 125-pound thrusters represent the deaths that occurred at the Pentagon; the 175-pound power clean stands for AA Flight 175 that collided with the South Tower; Flight 77 and Flight 93 were combined and are represented in the 170-pound Deadlift; and the 110-pound Push Jerk signifies the number floors in each of the Twin Towers.
